Off topic

Threads that do this drive me mad, I figure I can't be the only one because when it happens the number of participants shrinks to 3 or 4. Are peeps afraid of saying something? Can't be bothered anymore? Does this not fall under the Mods remit? Just asking because I popped into the latest helmet thread [my own fault, no excuse] and the latest posts were all about something else entirely, any contributions are then seen as er, off topic :wacko:.

That's the nature of fora is it not? You start in one place but the conversation grows from there in any direction it chooses. :smile:

The Helmet threads tend to end up on very familiar ground where the latest two or three papers of varying quality get tossed around the main entrenched positions. That sub-forum is sometimes more a war of attrition than a thread by thread discussion.

The bit wot makes me soil my underwear laughing is how some people go even more off topic in their attempts to appear affronted about a thread going off topic. Pot and kettle, and all that.
